Lennon Michalski


My two dimensional and digital works have been exhibited in North Carolina, Kentucky, Colorado, Georgia, and Washington, D.C. I have also displayed work in group exhibitions internationally in Mexico, Colombia, and China. My work is in the collections of Churchill Downs Executive Office, Kroger Grocery, Eastern Kentucky University, University of Kentucky Gatton School of Business, University of Kentucky Lewis Honors College, and multiple installations for the University of Kentucky Health Center.

In addition to my painting and digital projects, I also self-published my first book entitled, How Penguins Save Television. The original artwork has been shown at the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning and the Woodford County Library. How Penguins Save Television can be found for purchase at Joseph Beth Booksellers, the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, and the 36th Annual Kentucky State Book Fair.

I collaborated on a large-scale African American History mural on an American Water tower tank in the North Lime area of Lexington Ky, and have completed two other large-scale murals, one in Ethiopia at a middle school, and one for the Tate’s Creek Kroger in Lexington KY. My last solo show was at Georgetown University exhibiting my Ghost Bike series in 2018.

I work with several nonprofit art organizations in the Lexington area which includes the Lexington Art League, Lex Arts, and the Living Arts and Science Center. I have given artist lectures at Morehead State University, Transylvania University, and the University of Northern Georgia. I recently taught a History of Photography along with a course in Art and Science over three summers for Jilin University in Changchun, China, and completed an artist residency at Vermont Studio Center. I earned my Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Digital Media from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Over the past decade, I have worked as an independent Artist and an Instructor of Digital Media, Photography, and Painting.
